Fury, Brad Pitt
“It sort of exploded out,” filmmaker David Ayer said about his latest film. “I wrote it for me.” Ayer’s kept largely inside the domain of police films thus far ("S.W.A.T.," "Street Kings," "End Of Watch"), but for his next trick, he’s taking on a WWII drama starring Brad Pitt. And if you think "so what? Pitt’s already done a WWII movie with Quentin Tarantino" (“Inglourious Basterds”), note that Ayer’s “Fury” sounds vastly different.

'71 Jack O'Connell
Don't forget the name Jack O'Connell. You'll be hearing it a lot very soon, particularly during the awards season when he leads Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken." Regular Playlist readers know we've sung his praises following his performance in the prison drama "Starred Up," and he turned our heads again at the Berlin Film Festival with a lead role in "'71." There's a good reason he's on our On The Rise 2014: 12 Actors To Watch list, and now a trailer has arrived for the latter film.

Kelly & Cal

See for yourself what put him on our list, with the first trailer for the movie arriving today.

"The Net," "Firewall," "Transcendence," "Hackers," "WarGames"....they've all tried to teach us the same lesson: computers can be bad news in the wrong hands. One mouse click, and you could be in deep trouble, and that's pretty much the entire premise of "Open Windows" which takes you online for a slightly silly thriller.

Take Me To The River
Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Al Green, Box Tops, Carl Perkins, Big Bill Broonzy, Bobby Womack, Booker T. & The MGs. These soul artists created a body of work that to this day stands with distinction, so what better way to honor them than to team up some of those musicians with.....hip hop artists?

The Babadook
Such is the state of the horror genre that we're more used to digesting news about (another) "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" prequel than anything resembling an original concept or project. So the excitement around "The Babadook" is notable. It made waves at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and is set to hit Fantastic Fest next month. So here's a new-ish trailer for the film.
